Re: How many women here own their own boat?

A lot depends on where you are and who you are with. A lively dock with many people in and out every weekend and a few week days encourages everyone to get out and have fun. When plans are made to...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

No spouse nor partner. Just a cat and some day a dog or two. If I need a man to do heavy work I will get one off the docks. The rest of the time no spouse required.

Only two comments:
If you do not have a sailing school nearby, you can rent a lot of how to sail videos from Netflix.

Re: Boat name location

The PO had the boat name in either Japanese or Chinese characters painted on the stbd bow. The languages share the same characters so you cannot say which language is the "correct" one.

Re: sailing has changed my life

PTSD. Sailing, actually just being on the water, help bring a happiness and calm. I will be offering time on the water to other vets this year.

Re: Varnish brushes

Enjoyable thread. I will use what is cheap and available for the first two or even three coats. That includes a paper towel. Those are well sanded. The final coat is excellent with a foam brush,...

Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

I like this revived thread.

Re: Purchasing Sunken boats

That sounds like a wreck that is worth less than $0.00. You should be able to find something that is not wet and broken with a little searching.

Re: Which winch?

Re: How did you get the money for your first sailboat?

Re: VHF Radio in the cockpit

The PO cutout a small cubby to locate the autopilot out of the way. I mounted the RAM next to it. Due to size it sticks out, but I like having it close by.

Re: When is the wind speed too much?

Sailing gets fun in that wind. It depends on what you like. I see people coming in to the marina any time the breeze goes above 10 kts. Others go out when it is putting a little white on the wave...
